What We Do

We are a private child and family health service based in Kilkenny, Ireland.  We aim to support babies, toddlers, children and young people’s well being, development and learning.  We offer psychology, psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, speech and language therapy, and occupational therapy to children of all ages. 

 

 Our Approach in the Clinic

Our clinic operates a family-systemic, disability and mental health service which offers multi-disciplinary assessments, interventions, psycho-education and therapy to children and families. We also offer training and courses to parents, children, teachers and professionals on a range of topics – online and in person.

Our 6 hour Online Programme for Expecting Parents:

  • Protects against stress by educating & preparing expecting parents
  • Fosters healthy attachment and positive mental health using a pioneering approach from Harvard University, & the field of Infant Mental Health
  • Empowers expecting parents to be the BEST kind of parent they can be – parents explore their parenting identity and style
  • The parent & baby are enabled to thrive by accessing cutting edge research from doctors, midwives, paediatricians & psychological specialists
  • Equips parents with strategies to manage the challenges of life with a newborn – managing sleep, feeding, crying, playing & communicating with a newborn baby
